Polka Addiction

by John Palm

I entered the “polka lifestyle” under the mantra…

It’s all just fun and games.

…then when the pain hit I began to see the tuba and the fancy polka trousers as my escape. Yes, there were times I felt like they were speaking aloud saying…

It’s ok, we will make it all better. Medicate your pain with Polka.

Forgive my weakness when I fall to the lure of Polka music. And find myself right back where I swore I would never go again! Darn you, Polka… darn you to the depths of the earth!
